View Full Version : Script to change Tivo channel change from IR blaster to analog tuner?

Hi all. I have a S2 Tivo (TCD240xxx) that is currently set up to receive channels from a cable box. It uses the IR cable to change the channels.

I have some recordings that I don't want to lose, and I want to get rid of my cable box and go back to analog signal. I'd have to repeat Guided Setup or even do a C&DE to set it up to use its analog tv tuner.

Is there a script that would make the change from digital to analog without having to go through GS or C&DE?? I have telnet access to the Tivo.

I'd appreciate any ideas. Thanks.

You just need to do Guided Setup. That won't wipe out your recordings. Do NOT do a Clear & Delete Everything, as that most definitely will delete your recordings.
